Book Review – Sway (Landry Family, #1) by Adriana Locke


BARRETT LANDRY has it all.
Power, prestige, and plenty of women, the dapper politician’s life is pretty phenomenal. But in the midst of the biggest campaign of his life, he needs to focus. The last thing he can afford is a distraction.

ALISON BAKER is a work-in-progress.
As a single mother to HUXLEY, she’s rebuilding life on her terms. She’s focused on family, faith, and a future for her son that can’t be taken away. Putting her child first means not being careless, no matter what.

A chance encounter forces Barrett and Alison to redefine what they really want out of life. But everything comes at a cost … and sometimes, even for love, it’s a price too steep to pay.

Sway was one of the best political romances that I’ve ever read, and it had everything I could have hoped for and so much more! It was only my second novel by Adriana Locke and it definitely won’t be the last. I absolutely LOVED and ADORED her writing style and the storyline and characters she created in Sway. I was hooked to Barrett and Alison’s story from beginning to end, and I truly loved reading every moment of it.

   Barrett and Alison were amazing characters and they immediately won me over. I loved their personalities and chemistry together, and I thoroughly enjoyed how their relationship progressed. I loved reading the book from both Barrett and Alison’s POV, and I loved their banter and interactions with each other. There was definitely no shortage of drama in Sway, which is to be expected in a political romance, but luckily it wasn’t anything that was super annoying. I honestly don’t know how politicians deal with all of it on a regular basis. It certainly wouldn’t be my career choice, that’s for sure. Despite some of the drama and uncertainty  in the story, I loved Barrett, Alison, her son Huxley, her friends/co-workers, and the entire Landry family. I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited to start a new series as I have been with the Landry Family series. I fell head over heels in love with all of them, and I am so freaking excited to read more about the other Landry siblings, starting with Lincoln’s story in Swing next.

   Sway was sweet, sexy, intriguing, and addicting, and one of my favorite reads of the year. I was captivated by the storyline and characters from start to finish, and I was very happy with the resolution to Barrett and Alison’s story. There were definitely a few ups and downs throughout, but all of it was totally worth it in the end. Adriana Locke is a pure literary genius and I am so ecstatic that I discovered her books. She is certainly a new favorite author for me, and I honestly can’t wait to read more from her! If you haven’t checked out her books yet, especially the Landry Family series, you should really do so ASAP!
